Seeing Beyonce pregnant, with the conception confirmed live by the singer herself, sent the Twitterverse into an absolute frenzy at the MTV VMAs Sunday.
During her performance of “Love on Top,” Beyoncé declared “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me!” and rubbed her belly on stage.
That convergence of events broke Twitter records.
A staggering 8,868 Tweets were sent per second about Beyonce and her growing baby bump, according to a spokesman for the social networking site.
Before B, the highest number of Tweets posted per second was during the women’s soccer World Cup earlier this summer between Japan and America this summer, during which an average 7,196 Tweets were posted per second.
Basically, Beyonce is bigger than the World Cup, Not surprising.
